Global, impactful and sustainable virtual training for real-world healthcare 

Nipro is a leading global healthcare company serving the medical device, pharmaceutical, and pharma packaging industries and is committed to positive patient outcomes and improved quality of life. To highlight this commitment, Nipro built the Institute of Medical Practice (iMEP) in Belgium. 

To expand its reach globally, the Institute was looking for real-life remote learning technology designed by and for trainers that would have the required impact in healthcare, where precision and accuracy are lifesaving – enter Barco weConnect.

The partnership began in 2020 with the installation of a 46-seat weConnect virtual classroom.
